A 2012 dog bite case that resulted in legal action generated significant media coverage for Salem, Missouri. David Backes of the St. Louis Blues and his wife got involved by securing a home for the dog in a no-kill animal shelter, though the offer was not needed after the matter was resolved. The dog's owners applied for civil relief before associate circuit judge Scott Bernstein, which was granted, and the dog was returned to them sixteen months after being seized by town officials. The result of the case was that political leadership in the 4th Class city arrangement was adjusted and at the next local election, the mayor of fourteen years was replaced by the veterinarian who boarded the yellow Labrador retriever.


In 1839, Sarcoxie Missouri was named in honor of Sarcoxie, a chief of the Delaware Indians who had settled in the area. Sarcoxie was once the strawberry capital of the world, they even had their own currency that had a picture of a strawberry on one side.

The Hunter Memorial Cemetery in Sikeston Missouri was established around 1812 after the New Madrid earthquake by Joseph Hunter II who served under George Rogers Clark during the Revolutionary War and on Territorial Council for President Madison.


On May 17, 1946, William Jefferson Blythe Jr., father of U.S. President Bill Clinton, died outside Sikeston on U.S. Route 60 after being thrown from his car and drowning in a drainage ditch. This occurred three months before Bill Clinton's birth.


On January 21, 1955, a mostly unknown 20-year old Elvis Presley performed at the Sikeston Armory with Johnny Cash. They both returned on September 7, 1955.


On April 1, 1965, Ronald Reagan was the guest speaker for the Sikeston Chamber of Commerce's annual banquet and was presented an " Honorary Cotton Picker of Southeast Missouri " plaque, perhaps as part of an April Fools' Day joke.


In 1931, J. Otto Hahs (1891-1969) invented and patented the coin-operated horse in Sikeston.
